Joey wasn’t the only one exhausted by the slumpy leather sofa.

Given the grand size of this space, division has been well implemented thanks to the use of natural materials. Crossbeams are taken full advantage of, capturing the attention instantly thanks to an overhang of attractive indoor plants. One can just see the glass shelving jutting out which appears to be a further display which doubles as a hallmark of room division.
Small spotlights illuminate at intersecting angles, hiding away beside the large-paned skylights. The designer has kept to natural materials throughout the layout of this structure. The slate stone floors match the wooden rafters and window frames perfectly, with the design carrying equally well to artificial aesthetics.
From the carpet carrying a stony texture, to the leather couches holding true to the natural feel, each aspect of this room and its adjoining counterparts inspire a grounding, homely ambiance. Even the little one is given into the deeply calming scene set by this attractive hipster home. High arches leave one with a feeling of spaciousness, yet nothing more than careful window design has ensured that the passageway stays concealed with a full view of outside. Transporting the look and lines of the arched roof truss design, each window is framed and perfectly square, giving depth to every area of the space.
